  • I get your point - sort of - but it would have made no sense at all for a company with a FF mount like Canon to replicate their range of top end glass just for APS-C when the FF version works ...
  • I think you're very optimistic if you want to get an EM1 mk 2 as an upgrade for Spring 2017. Remember, Olympus hasn't announced a new camera, only the development of a new camera with an ...
  • It seems unlikely to me that Olympus has set a price yet given that the camera is not officially released yet and is still in development. I'd say this is just a guess. 30% more than the cost of ...
  • Back when I started with the first real DSLR (Canon D30)  I'd have my order in the moment a new model was announced. But I was trying to get the same capabilities as my previous EOS 3 film system. ...
  • Given that these days IQ and performance enhancements are fairly small, and most of time make little difference to real world results, changes to the ergonomics of the camera have an increasingly ...
  • I think that's rather against the ethos of m43, where interchangability is the key. User experience of particular lenses (eg. 100-400) is of interest regardless of body used. I have no problem with ...
  • But 110 and 43 are not the same size - 110: 17x13mm 4/3: 18x13.5mm Sure it's similar, but would suggest that the 43 sensor was not intended as a match to 110 film. IS it close enough? Don't know. ...
  • Yes there is. Have a read of this https://web.archive.org/web/20110714235957/http://www.olympus-europa.com/consumer/dslr_7045.htm How much difference this really makes is perhaps open to debate, ...
  • I suspect m43 was an afterthought - "Hey, what if we get rid of the mirror?" But essentially m43 inherits the design philosophy of the original 4/3 format - which, perhaps has been over hyped, but ...
  • Very nostalgic. When I was studying for my Library & Information Science degree back in 1985, this was cutting edge stuff and the UK was breaking ground in making such technologies available to ...
  • Well tonight I downloaded the 30 day trial, and used the conversion utility to import a copy of my Imatch 3 database. Fortunately I have 2 pcs at my disposal, so was able to do a completely fresh ...
  • No, and this is the important thing, FF (and APS-C) were designed around an existing lens base designed for 35mm film. The important thing about 4/3 and m43 as well as Leica S is that they were ...
  • Thanks for the thoughtful reply ... I've yet to decide which way to go. I putting a year's worth of images into Lightroom to see how I get on. To be honest, there is much in iMatch that I don't ...
  • Yes - for some. The beauty of m43 is it really offers you 2 systems in one - you can opt for a set of tiny lenses that fit in your pocket, or go the maximum quality route, and anything in between. ...
  • The truth is FF and APS-C are no more than historical accidents. 4:3 and m43 were designed from scratch for digital photography, as was the Leica S system. As I see it, FF and APS-C hadn't ...
  • As a general rule, every update we see is offering less and less in the way of new capabilities compared to the previous model. In other words, things are pretty good across the board at any given ...
  • Hmm yes ... but, I have been slow in moving to IMatch 5 as I have been working on tiding up my 3.16 data before hand. So when I had a problem the other day and read on your site 3.16 was no longer ...
  • Created discussion thread Moving to Lightroom
    A bit of background - I'm very experienced with Adobe products (started with PS v.3), but have always used iMatch (from Phototools) as my cataloging system. It currently has over 300k images in ...
  • Personally I'd rather make my B&W adjustments on a large monitor with controlled lighting than on a small LCD with reflections etc.
  • OK no question that the camera appears (on paper) to be a worthwhile evolution of the EM-1, but, to be honest I don't see anything that will make my real world shoots significantly better. Should I ...
